Weekly Wrap up!

Week 1:
Well we started our school year on Tuesday, at least partially. We started Math, Science(with daddy) Grammar, Phonics, Spelling, Art, and Music. I just received our Beyond Little Hearts For His Glory guide yesterday, so we will start that on Monday. It covers History, Geography, Bible, Poetry, Spelling, Grammar, Copywork, Math, Science(with mommy), Story Time, Art, and Music. I was able to look through the guide yesterday quite a bit, and it looks great. I'm excited to be able to do all those fun hands on things I always intend to do, but never get around to. It is going to be right up Sweetpea's alley. In other exciting news Buddy is 8 months old today! He had his first finger food this week(cheerios), and got his first tooth.

For art this week we looked at "Girl With a Watering Can" by Renoir. The kids painted their interpretation of it yesterday. Here is Buster's:

Buttercup loves to paint!

Sweetpea was a little out of sorts, and didn't finish.

Grandma, and Papa brought the girls some rainbow makers!

My Brother in law has been hard at work, and is almost done with the dry rot repair.

Next is finish sanding and painting.

I hope you all had a great Fourth of July!

We sure did!
